Jeff Maxwell wants to know:
Anybody doing a festival of fives at the BMWMOA rally in Salem Oregon in July? I bet we could get a bunch up there for that! My wife and I will ride ours (both) up there and we have a bunch of other fivers here in Ventura to wrangle into going.
If you like Jeff's idea, please send a message to the mailing list.
